Oh no! Paradise is breaking down....
Based on a true story: A young Russian doctor and his French wife return to Russia after World War II. Once they realise that the promised paradise does not and will not exist, they desire to return to France. One problem: the government won't let them go. Living in an environment that distrusts foreigners and where everyone spies on everyone else, the family goes through tough times while husband and wife desperately try to wangle a plan to escape the country. |
